Though his public endorsement of Trump in May 2016 was noticeably lukewarm, McConnell urged him to work with the Federalist Society, the conservative legal organization, in planning his appointments to the 106 seats on the federal judiciary — including Scalia’s Supreme Court seat — that McConnell had held open during the Obama years. By August he had begun discussing the project with Donald F. McGahn II, Trump’s campaign lawyer and, later, White House counsel. After the election, McConnell told his chief of staff, “We are going to move judges like they are on a conveyor belt.” The airport-drone task force plans to issue recommendations for airports and law enforcement that need to handle drone incidents. And for the longer-term challenge, it'll develop policy details for dealing with incursions and rule enforcement. Ultimately, the work should apply also to other sites, like sports stadiums, prisons, military bases and national landmarks.
Mr. Reim plotted John’s movements on a Google map. Mr. Sugarman showed it to the assistant district attorney, who quickly dismissed the case. In January of 2012, ComScore said Pinterest pulled in 11.7 million unique visitors, making it the fastest site to break 10 million uniques. By the middle of that year, Pinterest had announced a 0 million funding round valuing it at .5 billion. Its investors included Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten and venture firm Andreessen Horowitz, which also invested in Skype, Facebook, Twitter and Airbnb. In February of the following year, ComScore counted more than 48 million people visiting Pinterest.
Schedule a Trip"Paratransit is often unreliable," Malcom Glenn, Uber's head of policy for accessibility and underserved communities, said in an interview. "We have a unique opportunity to significantly improve it." I haven't tried it myself (well, not since the days when it was strictly a Windows Media Center product), and CNET hasn't reviewed it. But it has a respectable 4.3-star average from over 300 Best Buy customers, so it might be just the right solution to round out your cord-cutting plan.

There's no minimum order, so if you wanted to order a single bottle of soda just to see a self-driving delivery pod in action, you could.
I recommend KnowRoaming, which comes in two flavors: a straight-up replacement for your existing SIM card and a sticker that permanently affixes to your existing card -- effectively putting two SIMs in your phone at once. But turns out the Golden Company doesn't quite match its Tinder profile pic when it comes to head count or battle elephants and Cersei is visibly disappointed. But nothing that a little bedroom time with Euron won't fix. Just quietly, "I wanted those elephants" is just about the best post-coital line I've heard in a TV show.

“ISIS will benefit,” he said. The most fun of any MCU installment yet, with a pitch-perfect high school hero who does more to endear himself in five minutes than some of these guys do over two or three films. And Michael Keaton as the antagonist gets a killer surprise twist that scared teenage me to death.
Schedule a TripAjax won the two-legged series on aggregate, 5-3. It needed less than 20 minutes to reverse a 2-1 deficit from the first leg in Amsterdam, with Hakim Ziyech scoring in the seventh minute and David Neres in the 18th. A story in The Wall Street Journal last year, and then a book called The History of the Future this year, both reported that Luckey was effectively forced out over his political activity. Facebook then said personnel matters were confidential.

(The boost is even better for drivers who plan to do most of their driving in stop-and-go traffic; the Hybrid's 40 mpg city estimate is 90% better than the conventional model, all for a mere 13% bump to the sticker price. Samsung has pushed the release of the Galaxy Fold to June.
WASHINGTON — As he awaits the Thursday release of the redacted special counsel report on his 2016 campaign’s ties to Russia, President Trump is filling his idle moments — and blowing off any anticipatory steam — by turning to a familiar pastime: television. Not that the Golf R is even close to being slow. The acceleration it achieves from its 306-horsepower engine (in UK-spec, Performance Pack guise) will easily pin your back against the seat, while the easy handling and boundless grip make it feel nippy and agile. The Golf R is exhilarating to drive, and on those roads, I wouldn't have chosen any other car.
Schedule a TripThat said, it’s important to them to act quickly on good impulses. Mr. Cattelan cited an old chestnut: “The guest is like fish, after three days it stinks,” he wrote. “The same goes for ideas: We love the very fresh ones.” "We lost friends, we lost family, we lost a part of ourselves. This is the fight of our lives."
A ruling by a federal appeals court on Thursday broadened constitutional protections for undocumented immigrants at the border, opening a potential new legal gateway for some to stay in the country. A pair of Teslas have become the first electric cars ever to compete in the Tire Rack One Lap of America. The weeklong rally race is widely regarded as being among the toughest street-car motorsports challenges in the country.
Schedule a TripI was a struggling reader, at first. Lots of extra help at home and in school turned me into an omnivorous reader by fourth grade. The books that bring back powerful memories are “The Borrowers” books, by Mary Norton, “Heidi,” by Johanna Spyri, “Little Women,” by Louisa May Alcott, and “Harriet the Spy,” by Louise Fitzhugh. I read “Dracula,” by Bram Stoker, in sixth grade. It freaked me out so much I threw it under my bed, and then became slightly hysterical, convinced that the book was emitting an eerie green light and that the vampire was going to come through the pages and bite me. My imagination was a bit of a burden for my mother. Imagine you're in a crowded or noisy location and you can't hear what's happening in the video. Or the audio on the clip is garbled. Or maybe you or someone you love is hard of hearing, the person speaking has speech patterns you can't quite make out or you want to keep the volume extremely low so you won't bother the people around you. Live Caption can lend a hand.

• Since 2015, according to CB Insights, more than 40 unicorns have had “down rounds” or “down exits” — that is, investments or sales at reduced valuations. Among them: the name-that-song app Shazam and Jessica Alba’s consumer-goods producer, Honest Company. Brakes are lightweight carbon-ceramic and the only transmission on offer is a six-speed manual, 9 pounds lighter than Porsche's seven-speed box, 40 pounds lighter than the PDK and, in my experience, far more rewarding than either of those two. That's mated to the same 4.0-liter flat-six found in the GT3 and GT3 RS, an engine that'll happily scream up to 9,000 rpm. It has no turbos, which also saves weight from the relative lack of plumbing.

Pichai, along with leadership from Microsoft, Oracle and other tech companies, attended a meeting last week at the White House to discuss 5G wireless networks, internet innovation and other tech subjects. Pichai also reportedly went to Washington in September to meet with lawmakers, including Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from California, in closed-door meetings. I've loved this last season of GoT, including Dani going bugshit all over King's Landing. There's been a lot of negativity about the windup, but I think it's just because people don't want ANY ending. But you know what they say: All good things...
